|Summary:||The remote host is missing an update for the 'gnutls'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.|
The remote host is missing an update for the 'gnutls'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
The GnuTLS library provides support for cryptographic algorithms and for
protocols such as Transport Layer Security (TLS).
A flaw was found in the way GnuTLS parsed session IDs from ServerHello
messages of the TLS/SSL handshake. A malicious server could use this flaw
to send an excessively long session ID value, which would trigger a buffer
overflow in a connecting TLS/SSL client application using GnuTLS, causing
the client application to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code.
A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way GnuTLS parsed X.509
certificates. A specially crafted certificate could cause a server or
client application using GnuTLS to crash. (CVE-2014-3465)
Red Hat would like to thank GnuTLS upstream for reporting these issues.
Upstream acknowledges Joonas Kuorilehto of Codenomicon as the original
reporter of CVE-2014-3466.
Users of GnuTLS are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
correct these issues. For the update to take effect, all applications
linked to the GnuTLS library must be restarted.
